- Road-trip between ancient forests and glaciers along Chile’s Carretera Austral
- Explore the glaciers in the South of Chile – the Antarctic region!
- Find out how to do Easter Island on a Budget
- Marvel at some of the best graffiti in the world, in Santiago
- Take a trip to the driest place on planet earth – The Atacama
- Learn about traditional Chilean delicacies Curanto and Sopaipillas
- See the beauty of the Island of Chiloe through this video
